This Spring, join us in introducing six new stories from Seeds students and Alumni who detail captivating narratives of their art, influence, personal life, and more. For our Seedlings, art functions as a tool to better express themselves and delve into a space where they can get lost and produce work that creates a sense of pride.
Discover artists like Adrian Smith who is inspired by God’s creations and uses his work as a vessel to heal people in a spiritual sense. In contrast, artist Maria Munoz’s hatred for art and the labor, pain, and frustration that comes with producing work is the exact reason why she loves it. These narratives detail the importance of culture and heritage, the power of representation, and struggles with internal demons, and how despite hardships and obstacles art will always be the best tool to combat life’s greatest setbacks.
As always thank you and join Seeds again for our June newsletter!
Seeds of the League Students and Alumni
The Power of Color
“Even though Japanese animator, Hayao Miyazaki and Japanese artist Takashi Murakami are artists who fall into the areas that I want to pursue and are both artists who I look up to for inspiration, Frida Kahlo gave me something no other artist could give me- representation.”

“Living in a world where I feel unable to express myself, art serves as my escape. I consume anger to flesh it out on a canvas. As a young girl from the Bronx, I was upset at the world- upset at the circumstances I was born to be in.”
